5 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation is not really an issue for me because I have a car. But if I were ever to need to get around, public transportation is everywhere surrounding the CSU campus. We even have the Trolley which is free!

4 College Junior

Transportation: Campus provides unlimited public transport for $25 a semester, which is a steal.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Easy to get around the city.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The campus is right in front of the Healthline and the Trolley. So it is very convenient. Right down the street you have all the buses that take you all around Cleveland and the Rapid. each student pays 25 dollars per semester for the unlimited RTA pass that you can use on any public transportation.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: CSU provides each student with free public transportation option as well as campus shuttles. This is especially great for students that commute. They can avoid parking costs and save money on gas, at the risk of convenience of course. The only downfall would be that if you miss a bus you are potentially late if that particular bus doesn't run frequently.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is no transportation available on campus that is through the school. Most students get around campus just fine because campus is not that big. The InnerLink can take you from the Science Building to Playhouse Square with only having to walk outside briefly. If a student wants to leave campus, he or she can take the trolley, which stops near the Music and Communication Building every ten minutes Monday–Friday 7 a.m.–7 p.m.

Getting outside of the city takes more time and patience because you have to make sure you have your bus pass ready, and the bus time schedule in mind. Once you have a destination, you can look up the bus route online. Make sure to do this all ahead of time because you do not want to get lost alone in Cleveland.
